Retired & Senior Volunteer Program

RSVP Logo R.S.V.P. (Retired & Senior Volunteer Program) is a National Service Senior Corps program, designed to recruit skilled, experienced, active adults ages 55 and older for volunteer activities meeting the needs of their communities. Volunteer service creates a sense of ownership, pride, and responsibility for the community and its needs. Volunteerism is also a proven wellness activity; people who volunteer are happier, healthier, and better informed than people who do not engage in service.
